Adventures on the Ancient Silk Road, 2009-2010.

--Adventures on the Ancient Silk Road, Priscillas final trade book, was published fall 2009. Its been ten years in the works and is already getting rave reviews. Priscillas deteriorating health meant that a ghostwriter had to be found to bring the MS to final form. Dawn Hunter came on board. For a year, she shared the passion that had gripped Priscilla for so longto such an extent that PG was happy to give her co-authorship credit.
